Anxiety is universal and we’ve all experience at some point in our lives, but sometimes it sticks around and if left untreated, anxiety can be crippling.
So what does it look and feel like?
Anxiety can feel like intense fear, terror, panic, or dread. It can make your heart hurt, your chest tight, and even make it difficult to breathe. You may feel sweaty and tingly, and your thoughts may race no matter what you try, making you feel defeated or trapped. When you start to avoid things, places, people or have a hard time with doing day to day things, it might be time to get help and this is where our expertise can help. Our approach uses the best methods for getting your life back, Cognitive-Behavior Therapy (CBT) and incorporates other mind body approaches like Mindfulness.
One of the great benefits of CBT is that once a person gains coping skills, they retain them for a lifetime learning how to challenge their thinking and change their mind, and better manage their emotions. Most people appreciate the fact they can experience significant improvement in a fairly short period, generally within 12-20 sessions.
